Modern Acoustics and Signal Processing

Seismic Wave Propagation and Scattering in the Heterogenous Earth

Authors: Sato, Haruo, Fehler, Michael C.

  • Covers seismic waves, which reveal much information about the Earth’s interior and recent advances expose the limitations of classical theory and analysis
  • Reflects the growing realization that the Earth’s crust contains many irregular components that transmit seismic waves in diverse ways, yet that these irregularities can be detected using advanced analytical methods
  • Provides a comprehensive survey of the latest developments in seismic wave propagation and analysis as well as a coherent introduction to the theory of scattering
  • Focuses on recent developments in the area of seismic wave propagation and scattering through the randomly heterogeneous structure of the Earth, with emphasis on the lithosphere
  • Includes discussions and analyses of observations using the latest theoretical methods, assisting the reader to see the practical use of the methods for characterizing the Earth
  • Successfully integrates information from different sources to provide a thorough discussion

About this book

Focusing on recent developments in the area of seismic wave propagation and scattering, this text combines information from numerous sources to present a coherent introduction to the theory of scattering in acoustic and elastic materials. With the emphasis firmly on the lithosphere, the book includes analyses of observations using the theoretical methods developed. Written for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduates of geophysics and planetary sciences, this is also of interest to civil engineers, seismologists, acoustical engineers, and others interested in wave propagation through inhomogeneous elastic media.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book published in 2009 is the second, corrected printing of the original one. Its contents are organized in a lively way so that it is easier to read and follow the discussion, with theoretical models and real examples adequately ‘scattered’ in the whole book. … this second printing will draw renewed and broadened attention from graduate students and researchers, not only in the field of geophysics but also in civil and acoustical engineering.” (Koji Uenishi, Pure and Applied Geophysics, Vol. 167, 2010)
